Directed to those who are approaching adult initiation, The Community Prays explains the Lords Prayer, the radically new prayer that Jesus taught us, as a gift from the Church to the Church. Through a line-by-line comparison between the gospel texts and reference to the familiar prayer, important questions about the Lords Prayer are explored: Why does the Lords Prayer sometimes differ from the Scripture texts? What is the meaning of the differences between the texts in Matthew and Luke, and what does this have to do with our lives as Christians? Does God test us? Why did Jesus teach us to call God Our Father? Line by line, the Lords Prayer describes our relationship to the God who loves us and leads us in the Spirit of Jesus Christ, so that we might not only pray as Jesus taught us but also live as Jesus taught us.
